Following the visit by Maltese Elite Referees to Northern Ireland in August to control top level matches organised by the Irish FA, this time round it is the Irish referees’ turn to come over to Malta as part of the referee exchange programme.
In fact, this weekend, top officials from the Irish FA will be in charge of two BOV Premier League matches Sliema Wanderers vs Hibernians and Balzan vs Melita.
FIFA referee Raymond Crangle, assistant referees David Anderson and Andrew Stevenson, and Andrew Davey as 4th official will be in charge of Sliema W. vs Hibernians on Saturday 6th while referee Andrew Davey, assistant referees David Anderson and Andrew Stevenson, and FIFA referee Raymond Crangle as 4th official will be in charge of Balzan vs Melita on Sunday 7th.
Both matches will be played at the National Stadium and kick-off at 15:00.
The finalisation of this referees’ exchange with Northern Ireland is another in an on-going series of similar experiences which in the last months have been taken in hand by the Malta FA Referees’ Department.
